Mission Statement

UNICEF was founded in 1946 to help children in postwar Europe, China, and the Middle East. Today, as the United Nations Children's Fund, it serves children and families in developing countries worldwide and depends entirely on voluntary contributions. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF was established in 1947, the first of 36 National Committees set up globally to support UNICEF through fundraising, education and advocacy. Since its inception, the Us Fund for UNICEF has provided UNICEF and various NGOs with $4.4 billion in cash and gifts-in-kind.

The U.S. Fund for UNICEF works to support UNICEF-assisted programs to immunize children, provide them with health care, nutritional supplements, and educational opportunities, as well as to protect children from exploitation as a result of child labor, armed conflicts, and emergency situations. Thanks to the efforts of UNICEF and its partners in 156 countries and territories in the developing world, more than seven million young lives are saved each year.
